Sunset Peak Road, often referred to locally as simply "8th Street" (the road name of the very last portion of the trail before it joins the ridge), is a well-maintained track providing incredible views of the city of Boise and connects you to the Boise Ridge. This trail is passable by any vehicle with moderate clearance. It's common to find a sedan parked along the trail in one of the turnoffs. The most challenging part of the trail is a small rutted hill, but it is still passable in 2WD. This trail is fantastic for sightseers looking to get an elevated view of Boise and is particularly stunning at night. Camping is not allowed anywhere on the trail.
